Welcome to Canstruction Santa Monica

Nov 2-17, 2019

Structures will be on display and open to the public at Watergarden Santa Monica in the building lobby adjacent to 26th St.

Canstruction is a long-running international design competition, held locally, between architects, engineers and design teams, that build inventive sculptures out of non-perishable food items. It is a festive affair that challenges these teams to “out creative” each other, involves the community in judging and participation, and benefits the local food banks. Canstruction Santa Monica has partnered with both Meals on Wheels West and the Westside Food Bank – they will receive 100% of the non-perishable food used in the construction of Canstruction. Canstruction Santa Monica will generate thousands of pounds of food for our community this year!

This year’s theme is, "It's all fun and games at the beach". Awards will be given in the following categories:

Best meal
Structural ingenuity
Best original design
Best labels
People’s choice
Most cans
